that is normal... Mine does the same thing.

Some like it to the left and others like it to the right and shave their rudder to adjust it that way.

Like Jim said it helps hold it straight. You keep preasure on the wheel and that way you will hold a straigher line.

So much for the polishing, the nightmare has just begun!

does anyone have pics of the angle on their rudder so I can compare. You can see by my pics which way the prop spins...

TMC#1---> Yes, all that glitz isn't worth anything unless she drives like you like it...

I'll pile on what everybody else has been saying. The pull is normal. If you've never owned an inboard it will feel very strong. It's normal. You will get used to it. Start grinding and you'll be sorry in the end.

I think it was brian that did a thread with pics on filing down the rudder. It might even be in the FAQ's
